“Les deux pigeons, with its prettily romantic and engagingly French music was refashioned by John Lanchbery, in favour of Ashton’s eternal triangle. The pigeons remain, to add a nice sentimental touch to the romantic reconciliation of the lovers. Wordsworth’s performance is most elegantly turned, and very agreeable listening. Lambert’s masterly transcription of Liszt’s Dante Sonata is a tour de force of romantic hyperbole … as it swings between gloomy intensity and sweet celestial romanticism … played with great conviction and ardour. (Both) scores are played with finesse, colour and commitment. The recording is excellent. Recommended.” (Gramophone)
